Ladies of The View Turn on AOC and the Other ‘Justice Democrats’

Ladies of The View Turn on AOC and the Other ‘Justice Democrats’

“I don’t know about going to race right away — it’s like really? that’s where you go right away?”

https://youtu.be/w_dUyvbz1JY

The ongoing feud between Nancy Pelosi and her far-left freshman upstarts has caused something amazing to happen. The ladies of The View have lost patience with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the rest of the “squad” after Ocasio-Cortez played the race card.

Sam Dorman reports at FOX News:

‘View’ tells AOC, others Dems to respect Pelosi after racism accusation: ‘More BS’

It seems Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez might’ve gone too far this time — so much so that even some of the biggest Democrat defenders on television have turned on her…

On “The View” Thursday, the hosts — especially Whoopi Goldberg — had some tough words for AOC and the rest of her “squad” amid the increasingly bitter feud…

“I think this is more BS,” Goldberg said after mentioning the race accusation. Goldberg was annoyed that younger lawmakers were criticizing how effective Pelosi, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and other older Democrats had been in effecting change.

“I don’t know about going to race right away — it’s like really? that’s where you go right away? I thought that that was a bit much, frankly.”

Goldberg also knocked freshmen for their apparent lack of compromise. “Women of color, watch me now. Let’s keep this in mind, do you think Nancy Pelosi wanted to pass a half-assed bill? No, the moderates were the problem and I would say to these women.” She appeared to be referring to the border funding bill that fueled a lot of the controversy surrounding Ocasio-Cortez and others in the party.

She added that if Ocasio-Cortez and others did not try to reach out and persuade moderates, they shouldn’t complain about legislation. “If you’re not going to do that, you’re not allowed to b—h about this.”

Joy Behar still manages to get in several outrageous anti-Trump insults, but this video is worth watching because it represents a shift in public opinion. When AOC and company have lost “The View” you know something has changed:

Ed Morrissey of Hot Air made this observation:

Meghan McCain at first channeled the delight of nearly everyone on the right by saying she wanted Democrats to “fight it out,” but circled around to defending Pelosi as a civil servant worthy of respect. Missing from this entire conversation, though, was a recognition or even a mention of the Democratic habit of tossing race cards at their critics and why AOC’s attempt to play it on Pelosi is hardly surprising. That was an opportunity that unfortunately passed, but at least this is good for another few minutes of popcorn-passing.

This all stems from an interview AOC gave to the Washington Post in which she accused Nancy Pelosi of singling out “women of color” which was so obviously a not-so-thinly veiled accusation of racism.

In this short clip from The Hill, AOC tries to backtrack using a claim of death threats, and when asked if she thinks Pelosi harbors any racial animus, she responds with a big no:

AOC and her crew are burning through good will at an alarming pace. It’s ironic to see someone like Whoopi Goldberg and others finally coming face to face with the monster they helped create.

    We’ll know the View is making “progress” :::cough cough::::
    when they call Pelosi out as a traitor and
    admit that OAC is just another honky of Spanish/European descent.

Being asked to watch The View is almost unforgivable, but thanks for this good news.

Racism doesn’t work as a charge any longer, let alone an allusion to racism. It’s a battle over who sets the agenda, AOC or the media.

AOC is trying to do to the media what Trump did and lead them around where she wants.

“I don’t know about going to race right away — it’s like really? that’s where you go right away?”

Right away?! The race card is not supposed to be a strategy. It’s not one of the tools in an argument, unless your argument has no merit in the first place.

    Admitting they are leftists. Refreshing because liberals like to say they are moderates

Burning through their goodwill?
That ship sailed loooooong ago.

The intersections are cutting the Democrats apart.

It was inevitable.

John Casteel | July 12, 2019 at 8:37 am

Well, in a way, AOC is right. Nancy Pelosi is at least as racist as most of the people leftists like Nancy Pelosi call racists. Maybe this is progress.

They are mad that her comments
– show how loosely the race card is used NOW
– which devalues THEIR use of the card

A political Gresham’s Law at work

The empty heads on The View don’t mind that The Dud Squad cried racism.

“I don’t know about going to race right away — it’s like really? that’s where you go right away? I thought that that was a bit much, frankly.”

They do mind that The Dud Squad cried racism against a Democrat. That’s verboten.

The race card is only to be played right away against Republicans. The Dud Squad just don’t know their history.

    Yes. All totalitarians have periodic purges and witch hunts within their own ranks. Democrats don’t have the power to send people to gas chambers or labor camps (yet) so the accuse each other of being .counter-revolutionaries (racists).

The Fab Four are only reciting the rhetoric that they have learned from leaders like…Nancy Pelosi. The schadenfreude is strong with this one. Never stand in the way of karma.

The real objection is to being treated like Republicans. They SHOULD object to that.

Don’t read too much into this. This dust up is nothing but a food fight between the old white Soviet Central Committee (Pelosi, Biden, Warren, etc) and the younger Khmer Rouge wannabes (Justice Democrats, Harris, Castro, etc). Both sides are genocidal maniacs who passionately believe in the glorious communist future, and are willing to spill blood to achieve it. The only difference is in which set of communists gets the spoils.

What you are seeing is the machine on the left shifting to the middle. AOC is a straw-man they built up to now tear her down in order to contrast their chosen candidate as being a more mature, sensible person. It is always scripted out well in advance for the dems.

Hard to say. Several possibilities, none of them good.

1. Maybe Whoopie thinks the Race Card should be deployed, but never against D’rats.

2. Or perhaps she thinks that it should be used . . . but that it’s a tactical blunder to do it too soon.

2. Or maybe she thinks that P.O.C. thing should be reserved for real P.O.C.s, and that Psycho-Crackpot doesn’t qualify.

Pretty nasty, whichever it is.

I imagine that the black P.O.C.s will eventually realize that if everybody—Hispanics, Muslims, pink unicorns—jumps onto the casual racism bandwagon, the blacks themselves will end up squeezed out and all the P.O.C. wannabees will make off with all the free stuff. But by the time they realize it, it will be too late.

Why oh why is the View even on?

It’s so irrelevant, always has been, I have never understood its success

”Joy Behar still manages to get in several outrageous anti-Trump insults, but this video is worth watching because…”

Oh, so I should get all excited because a gang of liberal hacks are angry at AOC? They’re just doing their jobs as the democrat’s palace guards and in doing so they fire a bunch of arrows at Trump just so that the people they really care about knows that they’re still loyal to the cause.

Sorry, I pass. This is a battle among leftists and we should just step aside and focus on our goals.

healthguyfsu | July 12, 2019 at 11:39 am

Liberal mouthpieces don’t even try to be subtle any more.

When disagreement is across party lines = racism

When disagreement is inside of party lines = don’t jump to the race card.

    healthguyfsu in reply to healthguyfsu. | July 12, 2019 at 12:50 pm

    I wonder if Branco has ever considered a comic strip. He could have a field day with this one.

    artichoke in reply to healthguyfsu. | July 12, 2019 at 9:21 pm

    I guess now if they don’t keep up the drama they just get ignored.

    This is a good sign. It’s not the behavior of the confident, of winners. And it’s fun to watch the craziness.

Why, yes. Divide by diversity. Sow dysfunction by diversity. A Democrat mainstay for leverage. The children have learned at their parent’s knee.

The “Ladies” of the View did not get upset when Harris played the race card on Biden, did they? It was perfectly acceptable then. So what is the main difference here? Joe Biden is a old, rich, Democrat, white man and Nancy Pelosi is an old, rich, Democrat, white WOMAN. Yep. There you go. You can attempt to look for some kind of ideological swing or even common decency, but it all boils down to sexism. The View cast are sexists.

The 4 horse faces of the apocalypse would be closer.

“Ladies Flibbertigibbets of The View…

Richard B. Riddick:
Remember that favorite game of yours?

Kyra:
“Who’s the Better Killer?”

Richard B. Riddick:
Let’s play.

The Democrats favorite game is “Who’s the better victim.”

“because it represents a shift in public opinion”

Stop parroting left-wing talking points. AOC and gang are nothing but an astroturfing campaign.

The only people wgo really, really support AOC are the idiots in her district who voted for her. The rest is all Twitter bots and embellishment by our corrupt MSM.

Dems always play the race card. Now they are calling other Dems racist. How appropriate. Harris calling out Biden, AOC accusing Pelosi, everyone pointing at Mayor Pete. Dems are the race baiting party. The color of your skin is all that matters to them. That is all they know. It is sickening- all they ever talk about is race and being angry. And it doesn’t matter if there is no substance – because then they will make it up, like Jussie. The Dem2020s fell all over themselves defending Smollett, who is an idiot to boot.

Whoopie and Meghan McCain do a great job of anchoring the show. They make the Colts offensive line look like lightweights.

CaliforniaJimbo | July 12, 2019 at 4:10 pm

AOC doesn’t realize that you have as much power as Nancy let’s you have. AOC is at the end of her line now and the dem machine will either reel her in or cut the line and let her sink.
AOC must understand that she is meant to fill a specific role as needed by the dem machine. Now she goes too far and me thinks Nancy is tired of paying attention to AOC.
The fact that the view harped on AOC and the fab 4 is telling. The dem machine owns the media and the story says what the dems say they will say.

Ugh. Back to vacation

I may step on my tongue, as for some reason race is a touchy subject. I never got that. When I started dating four decades ago I never cared about a woman’s pigmentation or national origin. I was just grateful for any woman who cared enough to pay attention to me.

This at first caused some shock to my grandmother when I brought the Dominican chick home for Christmas. I later dumped her when I discovered that despite what she told me she was not single. She was still married to an enlisted Sailor.

So I didn’t dump her because she was black. I dumped her because she lied to me. I’m not big on bigamy. What may not be immediately apparent to the casual observer, aside from the obvious facts of the case, is that I was subject to the UCMJ. Officers do not mess around with enlisted Sailor’s wives.

Two articles of which immediately spring to mind that I could have been found guilty of, had I been aware of the situation, were 133, conduct unbecoming of an officer and the general article 134. No woman is worth Leavenworth.

Also when I deployed to Panama to do counternarcotics she somehow slipped on base and stole my car. My squadron mate who was starting it up every once in a while, putting gas in it, and making sure the oil got changed (yes, I paid all the bills) called me one day and told me the car was gone. And he found out that the Dominican chick told somebody at the squadron that I said she could have it.

So he gave her the keys. And my friend wanted to know if I had actually wanted her to have it.

No. I had already dumped her when I found out she was still married. I told him to call the police. The Sandy Eggo PD wasn’t messing around when they caught her. They did the full felony stop. Face planted her on the hot summer pavement.

That works wonders for a relationship. If there had been any hope for a reconciliation it was definitely gone at that point.

I don’t care if a woman is from Norway or Nigeria. I can put up with a skinny woman, but I would rather she have some meat on her bones.

That tells me she enjoys my cooking.

And she was a pretty good cook to, having been a mess specialist in the Navy.

“24 Hours as a Navy Ship Line Cook – A Frank Experience”

So I wasn’t entirely happy to dump her.

Just as “she” doesn’t have male genitalia. That and not being a liar is all I rally care about. It’s now the rage to insist that some women have penises. No, they don’t. Call me transphobic or homophobic if you want. But racist I’m not.

    txvet2 in reply to Arminius. | July 12, 2019 at 7:25 pm

    Apropos of absolutely nothing. I, too, have dated women of various pigments and myriad nationalities, but a gentleman never tells – at least not THAT much. Besides, even if they knew all that you just told, they’d STILL call you a racist – in fact, they’d probably actually mean it.

      Arminius in reply to txvet2. | July 12, 2019 at 10:23 pm

      By an act of Congress and with the permission of some Marine DIs I became an officer and, technically, a gentleman.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=415HQ1t2ZNI

      This is one of my DIs. Apparently he is so impressive you can still find videos starring him. We nicknamed him the antichrist.

      And he wasn’t the mean one. Another DI butt stroked me with an M1 Garand. He said it wasn’t clean. It was clean. He just enjoyed doing that kind of thing.

      I’m comfortable revealing his identity because he willingly made this recruiting video showcasing himself. I will never identify the DI who cracked my ribs. Actually I don’t think I could pick him out of a police line up. I don’t remember his name. When he did that to get his jollies he put himself in my “eminently forgettable” category.

      Even if I remembered his name I wouldn’t tell anyone. Just like I never would identify any woman who ever formed a relationship with me. The story I told about the woman who lied about not being married and later stole my car isn’t really about her. I’m telling about myself. When I got involved with her I made a horrible mistake. Several of my friends tried to warn me but I didn’t listen. They could see she was bad news but all I could see was she was smoking hot. So I ascribed to her qualities that she didn’t possess. Fortunately I extricated myself from the situation that I made for myself before it was too late.

      Now that I look back on it I can get a laugh out of it. I don’t name names or give up any identifying information because, as you point out, gentlemen don’t do that. I don’t bear grudges. I sincerely hope she is happy.

Goldturd is so fat she can barely make it to the desk. I wonder when was the last time she bathed.

I love when race baiters get outraged when someone plays the race card on someone they like.

When you have nothing left, play the race card

My memory is fuzzy, but didn’t Whoopi give a monologue at the Oscars one of the years she hosted, pushing back against the people who claimed the Oscars were racist because no black people were nominated that year?

The message then as now seems to be you aren’t supposed to use that tactic against the “good guys”

    MajorWood in reply to LookoutABear. | July 13, 2019 at 8:01 pm

    The Oberlin students may that thought that they were protesting against Gibsons, but what they were really doing was giving a big finger to all of the alumni. I suspect in the long run that the check written to the Gibsons will be the second largest loss from that misadventure.

    The thing with children is that you need to set boundaries both firmly and when they are young. Pelosi didn’t do that with AOC and now she is stuck with a toddler in her terrible 2’s. I am pretty certain that AOC is being coached from the sidelines, but you just know that at some point she is going to run with it and bad things are going to happen, well, bad from their perspective. And bad for AOC when she tries to run for president in 2026.

This coven has been playing the race card against Trump as soon as the bumper music stops.
